Altaro VM Backup Review

Easy restore for entire virtual machine files.

What is most valuable?

  • Great backup features for all my Hyper V machines.
  • Excellent for offsite backup as an add on function
  • Easy restore for entire virtual machine files and sandbox option
  • Well priced
  • Excellent support and team behind this product

How has it helped my organization?

  • Easy of use backup
  • Fully functional multiple locations of backup

What needs improvement?

I want continuous Exchange backup, as this product allows you to revert the Exchange data to almost any custom point in time as it backs up exchange servers as soon as the transactional logs are closed. However I just add hourly backup to Altaro for Exchange servers.

I need to be able to restore emails to Exchange Live not just to a PST. This is a major drawback as I want to be able to restore individual items or mailboxes directly into my live Exchange databases so the user can see the email right away. I was able to do this with Backup Exec years ago (before I used Hyper V). For example, I had to restore a user’s contact I first restored the contacts to a PST file then imported the pst into outlook.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?
